Batch photo editing, The Linux way

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

I had a folder of *.CR2 files (raw image files from a canon camera) as my camera gives me the option to shoot in raw, jpeg or both simultaneously. No need to capture both anymore and waste precious space on your memory card with this little trick.

First things first you need DCRAW (for me a simple yaourt -S DCRAW), check your distributions package manager

Then navigate to the folder where your raw images are.

for i in *.CR2; do dcraw -c -a -w -v   $i | cjpeg -quality 100 > $i.jpg; done;

that will take every *.CR2 file in the directory, make a full quality *.jpg copy, ready for the web, media programs and more!


Hanging a 37″ sharp over a fireplace

Here we are, hanging a 37″ sharp aquous above a fireplace. There was no power or cable above said fireplace, but never a problem if you’re willing to patch and paint! 2 hours to fish the wires, hang the tv, and shelf!
